Overview

This 3-pack of replacement packets for Planet Waves' Humidipak humidification system is an affordable way to keep your acoustic instrument at its proper relative humidity. The packets last from 2-6 months, so ordering a three pack can last you anywhere from half a year to a year-and-a-half.

The patented, two-way Humidipak humidification system (sold separately) is a two-way humidity controller that's recommended by Taylor guitars and other leading manufacturers for maintaining the stability and playability of your instrument. This humidification system maintains 45-50% relative humidity, eliminating all maintenance and guesswork. No more guessing if or when to refill the humidifier and worrying about drips or creating a mess. Unlike other refillable humidifiers, the Humidipak humidity controller acts as a gauge because it provides true two-way, purified humidity control. It adds or reduces moisture as needed to maintain proper relative humidity, which is the ideal climate for wooden instruments such as acoustic guitars.

Just place 2 packets in the double pouch, place the double pouch over your D and G strings, and let it hang down into the soundhole. Place the third Humidipak replacement packet under your guitar's headstock while in its case. Close the case and you're done! The packet will last anywhere from 2-6 months, depending on the humidity where you instrument is located. When the Humidipak packet becomes firm, discard it and replace it with another Humidipak replacement packet.

I was using a Kysor humidifier that went over the guitar sound hole but stoppe using it over concerns for newly installed electronics not liking moisture. I moved the same humidifier to the small space where the guitar neck heel and the case storage compartment meet. Trouble is the case closes tight up against the body offering no chance for the humidifier to work. Then I learned about this system. I purchased the system and installed the single pack in the upper tuner portion of the case and the double pack into the sound hole. I wasn't as concerned about the electronics because there isn't direct conveyence of the moisture from a wet sponge to the body. The packs lasted about 3.5 months in a relatively wet environment. When I replaced them it had turned to winter and the environment became very dry due to our heating system. The packs lasted only about 2.5 months which I found acceptable. Due to the extreme dryness (roughly 20% RH) I also re-installed the Kysor unit. I want to note that I use my guitar a lot and leave the case closed when the guitar is out so I don't know why the other reviewer isn't experiencing the same success as I have.

For years I've struggled with the humidity issue in cold climates. Recently I purchased a new Taylor with their custom designed gig bag so thought I would try this humidification solution. I wasn't too thrilled about the possibility of replacement packs, but if they lasted as predicted, then it would be manageable. I've installed one set of packs in my guitar case and they only lasted one month. This was after ensuring the case was always closed and frequently putting them back in the sealed zip-loc bag they came in when the case was open for an extended period of time. So I need to find a more economical and effective solution since I am playing every day and frequently open my case. For long-term storage of an instrument, this would be a very good solution, especially since one would not take the time to monitor regularly, but for an instrument that is in regular use, I'm looking at another alternative.

      System does work, but....

      By Thomas

      from Pittsburgh, Pa.

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      I've been using the Humidipak system for a couple years now. It does work. However, it will not bring the level of humidity in a guitar case to the preferred 45%-55% automatically. The environment in the case must already be there. This is confirmed by Planet Waves customer service, who by the way are great people. I know this to be true because when I got my acoustic back from GC Garage the humidity level was a perfect 45% and the packs maintained it. Of course it changed some from constant opening and closing the case but was always in the preferred range. So with high humidity you have to bring it down for the packs to maintain the proper level. They will bring it up but will be used up quickly in dry weather. If using in a gig bag you're wasting money as a gig bag will always attract moisture or lose it. Get a good hard case!

      Works great but a little too costly

      By Eric Carlson

      from Bloomington, MN

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      I am on my second year of using this product and I think it will be my last. Not for any other reason then the cost of the Replacement packs and how long they last. I have a Taylor GSRS and it must be a thirsty guitar because these Humidipacks last only a little over a month for me here in Minnesota. To give an idea I am now needing to buy my 4th replacement pack since I started using in mid October and its now mid February. On that path I will most likely need another set come end of March which will take me to end of season. The seasonal cost comes to over $100 and thats just one guitar. In the end the product work like it says and that is perfect. Guitar has had no issues with being dry, no fret ends looking out, sunk top..nothing but a happy guitar. I just need my pocket book to be able to say the same.

      Great idea but pricey!

      By Mark Guattery

      from Rochester, NY

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      I have used these in my acoustic case for over a year now and I will admit they have kept things perfect. I can pull it out in the dead of a cold New England winter (No Humidity) and it plays perfectly and no need for adjustments of any kind, full rich sound without the dried wood overtones. They just happen to cost a bit. I usually try to buy the refills with coupons or sales.. Still a far better alternative to anything with a sponge.. I have one and it dried out completely in about 24 hours versus about 6 weeks with the Humidipak.

      Planet Waves Humidipak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack

      By richard zaia

      from leesburg va

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      these are great but a little pricy.. At the curent GC price they are better than great. i can go with about two of these per year per Guitar where i live..( Northern Va).. I severly harmed one of my high end taylors with a drip from the old stlye.. No more of those for me... Suggestion.. Keep youe Guitar case closed when you playing with these inside... they will last longer... Rich

      These work great

      By James Caldwell

      from St Louis

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      These work great. I have been using them for 2 months now and my humidity in the case stays at 45%. The packs themselves are holding up quite well. My Taylor still has that sweet sound it had the day I brought it home from guitar center. I make sure I leave them in the closed case while I am playing per the instructions and they still haven't begun to dry up on me.

      Common Sense

      By Kathleen Gentry

      from Indianapolis

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      I can't believe the reviews on this one item "humidipak"...I personally am very happy with this product. I don't have a problem if I need to purchase this product every month (so far my first set is over 6 weeks of use) for my new classical guitar "it's worth the money". I have a humidity/temp gage in the guitar case and everything is doing perfectly fine. It's common sense, simply common sense and the ease of using these that makes it worth the money. If I lived in the dessert I would expect them not to last very long. People so many times want a miracle and expect way too much and can be very unreasonable. I wouldn't be without these and the ease/convenience are worth every penny.

      Humidity Level never above 38%

      By Joe Choat

      from Chicago Illinois

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      Well after my third set of the packs, and testing with a humidity gauge, inside my case, I can report that after careful monitoring that I can not achieve more that 38% in side the case.This is consistent with this product. So many reviews focus on " Ease of Use" with no mention of the humidity level. If more people would check the level in their cases, this product would be off the market by now. Buyer beware! This product simply does not work as represented.

      Great low maintenance option, just not cheap

      By Chris Olson

      from Olathe, KS

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      This humidification system is great in that it's super low maintenance. No measuring the humidity levels, and no messing with filling up containers or wetting sponges. You stick them in, and you're set. Simple as that. I started using these on my brand new acoustic and there was an immediate improvement in my tone and sustain. Proper humidity is everything! The only downside is that they don't last THAT long. But it depends on where you live and your specific climate. I am in KC, and it gets very dry in the winter. I was going through these in under a month. But now that Spring has hit, the current pack has lasted ALOT longer. In the summer it gets crazy humid, so we'll see what happens then. The other big plus? There is ZERO chance of you getting water on the wood in your guitar, which can be bad. That kind of safety is important.

      Doesn't Last Long

      By Michael Jackson

      from Oklahoma City, OK

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves HuMIDIpak Replacement Packets - 3 Pack:

      After buying my new name brand acoustic, I knew I needed a good humidifying solution. It's a good quality project and a good idea, but the humidipaks only lasted 5 weeks. The guitar case was never left open, and it's not like I live in the dessert. The average relative humidity in Oklahoma City is in the 45% range and I would expect the humidipaks to last quite awhile. I'm very disappointed.
